I was just wondering what art everybody does and how long he/she practice per day. And how many days a week.

Hello

I practise Kyokushin 2-3 times a week. The classes are suppossed to be an hour long but most people stick around for a couple more rounds in the ring and arrive half an hour early to warm up. So usually I'm there for about two hours. Also I take two week breaks every three months to give me time to heal and relax.

I personally run classes 4 days a week for 1.5-2hrs each....

Train personally 1 hr per day - 6 days per week...

Weight train 3 days a week...

Run 5 days a week...

Slowed down a bit in my old age...when I was fighting on an ongoing basis...it was 4 hours a day 6 days a week...

I go to teakwondo class for 1 hour and 15 mintues for 5 times a day. I train by my self in MT for 1 and half hour a day. Then I lift one hours a day. I also run and jump rop for 30 mintues.

So about 3 hours and 15 mintues a day.

I am planing to do more running so I can last longer in training.

  • One hour-and-a-half lesson of kickboxing a week...and about 30 minutes of practising nearly every day.
  • Running between 3-8 miles a day, 4 or 5 times a week.
  • Sit-ups, tricep dips and press-ups every day (not many because they're boring)
  • Skipping whenever I find a moment.
  • At least 40 minutes of yoga a day.


That's about it.

I train at the dojo 4 (soon 5) times a week (for an hour and a half each day). When I'm not at the dojo, I practise for at least 2 hours each day at home (Kihon basics, Kata, and Gohon Kumite).

I also practise Kobudo, twice a week (or when I can) for an hour and a half.

I used to go weight training 3 times a week, but I got bored of it

Glad to know someone else finds weight-training so boring

I do (sometimes) use ankle and wriste weights whilst practising at home, it's suprising what a difference they can do, especially with blocks, kicks and punches.

On top of my Karate lessons each week i train (on average) 2 hours a day 4 days a week in various stuff such as weights, running, skipping and technque and bagwork.

Recently though i had been training every day and now the doctor seems to think i'm gonna send myself to an early grave. Bah!
